Why the Jessica Lange Bruce Weber photo? That’s pretty much how we felt when we got a couple great mentions this week, in both The SF Bay Guardian & The NYT Magazine. (The Times Magazine had Jessica Lange on the same page, which sparked the image search.) The lovely Virginia Miller had some very nice things to say about us in this article for the SFBG, calling our line “some of the more inventive, elegant bitters on the market.” And on the new-ish One-Page front section of The NYT Magazine Mario Batali recommends using our Meyer Lemon Bitters in a gimlet–his recipe: 3 oz. Plymouth Gin (bold pour, Batali!), juice and pith of one lime, 2 drops of Brooklyn Hemispherical Meyer Lemon Bitters, shake and strain.
Below, Virginia Miller with Master Distiller Desmond Payne at the Beefeater Distillery in London. Payne was the Master Distiller for Plymouth Gin some years back–the very Plymouth that Batali recommends using in the BHB Meyer Lemon-kissed gimlet above. Sometimes everything seems connected. J.R.
